Jan. 15, 2018 - PaperWorks Industries has invested US$3 million in a new warehouse for its Wabash, Ind., paperboard mill. The new facility is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2018.

The 44,500-square-foot addition to the company’s existing mill will be capable of storing up to 7,000 tonnes of coated recycled board (CRB) rolls, says PaperWorks, adding that the mill produces the recently launched MasterWorks Ultra 100 line, as well as other CRB grades.

Previously, a third-party contractor handled a “significant portion” of the mill’s warehouse requirements, which resulted in additional transport fuel, time and labour. Since the new warehouse will be adjacent to production, customers will be serviced more efficiently and the environmental footprint will be reduced, notes the company.

The MasterWorks Ultra 100 line was engineered as a 100-per-cent recycled alternative to virgin grades, with multiple appearance and performance benefits, describes PaperWorks. In addition to whiteback, the line includes three CRB kraftback grades: Kraftback (general folding carton use), Kraftback Beverage (treated to provide tear strength for beverage applications) and Kraftback Freeze (moisture resistance for refrigerator or freezer applications).

PaperWorks Industries is an integrated North American full-service provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications. Its product certifications include the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and 100% Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA100).
According to Andy Bolton, president and CEO, the company has invested more than US$60 million over the past three years to upgrade its paperboard mills and folding carton converting plants.
